This week, we found out which two contestants had enough weight loss to get them a spot in next week’s finale and which two contestants will have to rely on your votes. Keep reading for more details!
The Biggest Loser on NBC is back tonight as the final four will face their final weigh in before next week’s finale. For a good portion of the show tonight we got looks back at the final four and their journey on the show. But it wasn’t all nostalgic as Alison Sweeney kicked off the contestants tonight with a cooking challenge. For this challenge sponsored by Jennie-O turkey, the contestants would have to cook a creative and delicious turkey burger for a group of hungry children – what better critics, right? Olivia made a turkey burger covered in “green slime” aka green yogurt while Hannah did a cheese covered burger. Jay made a “volcano” burger that was oozing toppings and Irene didn’t even seem to know what she made.
The winner of the challenge would receive $5k and a 2 week trip to The Biggest Loser Resort for a loved one. After passing out the burgers, Alison asked the children to go to the person who made the best burger. Irene and Olivia had a handful of children while Jay and Hannah had a crowd behind them. It was tight but Jay ended up with more children and the win. Jay was excited because he planned to treat his wife to The Resort for two weeks knowing that she would love it – what a sweet husband!
Next the final four got a workout in with the trainers, and then it was time for another challenge – everyone’s favorite challenge of putting the weight back on. This time, the contestants had to carry their lost weight in golf gear and remove the amount they lost each week in that week’s spot. They were greeted by season ten winner, Patrick House for a little inspiration before they started. For this challenge, the winner would receive a $15k home gym to keep up with their fitness at home.
Shortly into the challenge, Olivia suffered some back issues which pushed her behind the rest, but she eventually caught up with Jay. Irene and Hannah were neck in neck but Hannah managed to pull ahead and eventually win her first challenge ever. Irene followed in second, Olivia in third and Jay finished up last. Hannah was ecstatic to win a home gym and even more that she won a challenge.
Then it was time for their last chance workout, and it was even more emotional this time as they all knew it would be their last last chance workout with the trainers before the finale. Here is how the final four did at their final weigh in:
153 to 149 lbs for a total loss of 4 lbs (2.61%)
147 to 144 for a total loss of 3 lbs (2.04%)
150 to 146 for a total loss of 4 lbs (2.67%)
246 to 242 for a total loss of 4 lbs (1.63%)
This meant that Hannah actually beat out her sister for first place, but Olivia took second place making the pair the first two sisters to ever secure a spot in the finale together. That means it is up to you to vote for the last finalist, either Jay or Irene. After the finale four took an emotional trip home, Jay and Irene pleaded to America about why they should be in the finale.
